Befco's double action sickle bar mowers come complete with an adjustable top link that ensures a sharp clean cut. The double action sickle bar allows for a maximum working speed of up to 6.5 mph. Simple but tough construction along with a heavy duty P.T.O., weight compensation spring, transport blade protection and a safety release which protects the unit from obstructions in the field, all provide for a unit that will give years of trouble free service.
The hydraulic lift for easy transport and storage is standard on all Befco sickle bar mowers. With the capability of mowing 90° up 75° down (45° down on BSB-060) along with the low horsepower requirements make the Befco sickle bars capable of handling jobs that are not recommended for conventional disc mowers.
This sickle bar mower is more suitable for tractors 22hp and less over the SFI drum mower due to the lift capacity of tractors under 22hp.
